Parking near BSR can be difficult in the winter. We have very limited roadside parking which does not get plowed. The Summit County Sheriff’s Department reminds us to keep in mind that snowplow operators need a clear path to plow the full width of the roads.
This past weekend, several vehicles were parked too close to the road and were issued warnings. In the future, such vehicles will be subject to ticketing and towing. The sheriff’s department is asking for our cooperation to not park close to the canyon road.
Summit County ordinance #346 simply states “no on street parking” and “vehicles or other obstacles which hamper snow removal operations.” To avoid ambiguity, we are working on getting more specific details as to what “close” means.
